Tonight in Food TV: Questlove Awkwardly Plugs His Now-Closed Restaurant on Top Chef

Oof. This supremely awkward Top Chef: New Orleans Quickfire Challenge, guest-judged by fried drumstick connoisseur Questlove, could easily have been made a hell of a lot less awkward with the simple editing of one line.

Unfortunately, tonight’s drumstick challenge serves as an cringe-inducing plug for Quest’s now-closed New York City fried chicken joint Hybird (RIP). Check out a sneak peek below, and reclaim some of your dignity reading Quest’s beautiful postmortem on the restaurant here.
